Yanco Agricultural High School is a public co-educational residential high school specialising in agriculture.
All students from Year 7 to 12 are either weekly or full-time boarders.
Established in 1922, Yanco provides a broad, well balanced curriculum in a rural setting situated beside the Murrumbidgee River, just outside Leeton in the Riverina.
The school covers 280 hectares, including 180ha of intensive irrigation and dry land agriculture, as well as 60ha of natural bushland.
For those students from farming properties, Yanco is a home away from home.
The school runs both sheep and cattle studs and for those taking equine subjects, students are able to stable their horse at the school.
Apart from involvement in local team and sporting competitions, school facilities include a show stock centre, equine arena, tennis, netball and basketball courts, swimming pool, gymnasium, mountain bikes and kayaks and 10 hectares of playing fields.
Prospective students sit the selective high school placement test in Year 6.
Students entering Years 8 to 12 should apply directly to the school.
Applications are accepted midyear, although requests outside this time may be considered.
Yanco Agricultural High School will be holding Open Days on Monday, October 28, and February 17.
